Our community demographics are changing and we are adding new membership types to encourage greater diversity and participation in our Club. Up to now we have had three broad types of membership and plan to introduce three more categories from July 2016 to improve community engagement and help retain existing members.

Student membership - to include students who are in full-time education and under the age of 25

Family membership – changes to include student membership (point 1)

Couples membership – to take advantage of the high number of couples without children in the local area and to encourage more women to participate in tennis

Off-peak membership – to encourage seniors; unemployed; stay home mums and dads to be more active. We hope this will address some of the low utilisation of courts during off-peak periods. We have capped this membership to 50 for 2016/17. If you are interested in this membership please review the peak and off-peak times to make sure it suits your needs.

More information will be made available on our website in weeks to come.

Expressions of Interest for Spring Junior Competition

May 15, 2016, 9:00pm

This message is going out to all junior and family members to advise that we are now accepting expressions of interest for the Junior Spring Competition. Playing competition is one of the best ways for juniors to develop their tennis skills. It is also a good way for them to build team and social skills which is important for their self-esteem and resilience. Players will need to be 12 or over and under 19 years of age to be eligible for the NEJTA Competition. The Club will be asking existing and new players to submit an expression of interest via a paper based or online application form. Don’t worry if you or your child is new to the competition. Wayne Armstrong, our Junior Competition Secretary has extensive experience at grading junior players and integrating them into the broader Clifton Junior Team. For the spring season the Club is looking to add more girl teams to complement the strong participation of boys at our Club. If you are aware of girls who are keen on tennis and would like to join our teams please let them know as you will be supporting the Australian Federal Government’s initiative to improve the participation of girls in sport. In addition, we are planning to host a Junior Player Summit before the start of the spring season to create a Club spirit and hope to have speakers to inform, empower and motivate our junior players to be their best and demonstrate great sports ship. I thank you for being part of our Club and look forward to seeing you at the courts enjoying the tennis and supporting our junior tennis teams.

Pennant Try-out Day

March 6, 2016, 3:30pm - March 6, 2016, 5:00pm

To all Members & interested players looking to join Clifton Tennis Club, this is an invitation to attend the annual Pennant Try-out Day this Sunday the 6th of March from 3.30-5pm. Open to both male & female adults, as well as boys and girls who play junior competition and may wish to play competition in an adult Pennant team (if they are at the appropriate standard, such as the Men's Grade 10 Pennant team that we had last year, which was made up of teenage boys who are still in high school). Pennant competition also has no bearing or requirement for players to play night competition either - it is a separate competition run by Tennis Victoria that is played only during the daytime on the weekends during Winter/Autumn period, and in 2015 had standards ranging from Grade 1 through to 11. Rounds also rotate between singles & doubles competition throughout the season. For more information please see the attached flyer which is used as the photo for this event, and I will also answer any Pennant-related queries that any attendees may have who are able to attend this Sunday. PS - If you represented Clifton Tennis Club in 2015 and plan on continuing playing Pennant for the club in 2016 but cannot make the event - then do not worry. Just contact me via the club email (mail@cliftontennis.net), or through this event on Facebook, and we will correspond before I look at putting the teams and singles nomination lists together next week. I will also be corresponding with all Team Captains/Managers from last season's teams over the course of the next week as well. Note the weather will also be very warm on Sunday too - so stay well hydrated and bring a hat/sunscreen if applicable. Regards, Tom Featherstone Clifton Tennis Club Pennant Secretary
